LOL.....I haven't told hubby about the increased patch yet! I think I might wait on telling him to see if he notices the increased bust line I get from the patch on his own!!!!

You're right, people should have to pee in a cup if they have high BP too, after all, cocaine causes increased heart rate. It is only CP patients who have to run through the maze when it comes to getting help. There is such a small percentage of CP patients who become addicted but the docs cover their arses. I would think if the person is not receiving adequate pain control then of course they are more likely to try street/recreational drugs to find their own relief....so, if they do find illegal substances on the drug screen it would be more of a reason to try to help the patient rather than firing them.

I'm going to smile like nothing is wrong, act like everything is perfect, and pretend its not hurting me.

I'm so glad everything went AOK! fianlly a doc who knows that more than 3 doses of BT meds a day means your pain isnt being treated properly...now maybe someone can mention that to my doc and I wont have to be in as much pain!
I hope the higher dose works well for you
